Programming - Why EMOMs

Hey all, I'm going to start doing videos about various aspects of our training program at CrossFit Vic City. We utilize a very unique programming system that is very different from the usual CrossFit 6 day rotation, and there are many great reasons for that! I figure that the more you know the reasons "WHY" we are doing things, the more likely you are to pursue the right type of stimulus in certain workouts. This will accelerate your progress and help you avoid burnout in the process.

In this first video (apologies for the audio - I will improve it in future editions), I discuss the role of EMOM workouts in the overall picture of our programming. Specifically, I talk about how they fit into a training week, and how they allow real development of skills that can be transferred into workouts.

Take a look and let me know what you think!





WARM-UP: With a partner, 5 min amrap: 10 synchro double crunch (match at bottom and top), 8 pushup with hand tag (face each other, tag diagonal hands at top of pushup), 20 medball clean + chest pass (10 per partner, stand close together, clean ball then pass to partner)
